“Happiness is the Meaning and Purpose of Life”

Whether you run, ride, swim or walk, spend time in nature or just enjoy life. Being happy has immense health benefits. These are for joy and a healthy longevity and go way beyond the vitamin pills.

“Happiness is the meaning and the purpose of life, the whole aim and end of human existence.” The ancient Greek philosopher Aristotle said these words more than 2,000 years ago, and they still ring true today.

Aristotle – Greek Philosopher 19 June 384 BC – 7 March 322 BC

Often we have success in achieving a happy mood with people around us that we don’t know very well. That’s because we haven’t invested any of our hard earned emotion in these people. These are the ones it’s best to practice being happy on. It’s the path to establishing a pattern of being happy.

It’s family that seem to push our buttons the most and that’s probably because they installed them. But even if you can’t find a tree to sit under or a country path to meander, you still have hope for family get togethers. The greatest tool known to man is yours free and it’s your imagination.

You Really Can Fool Your Mind

Did you know that your mind doesn’t know the difference between what is real and what is imagined? That’s why you can awake from a nightmare in a cold sweat with heart palpitations from fear. Your conscious imagination though, is the key to creating a happy reality. You can gain the same benefits from imagining as you can from physically being there. Whether you are enjoying the serene benefits of nature in your mind, it can be as good as actually being there in person. And your mind doesn’t know the difference. It will begin to create endorphins in response.

Maybe its just not possible to canoe the tropical waters of Fiji, or have a massage on the beach in Tahiti, but you can still imagine it. For instance, imagine feeling that warm breeze on your face and the smell of the salty ocean air. Hear the seagulls in the distant blue sky. In addition, you can imagine the warmth of the sun on your body and relax listening to the sound of the waves gently rolling in and out. Sure you need to use your words instead of your eyes, but often people don’t take in their surroundings with appreciation even when they are there.

Health Benefits of Imagining

There are upsides to imagining the beach and not actually being there. For instance, there are no mosquitoes, bugs or uncomfortable sunburn. It can be as warm or as cool as you like.

You can be on your own or with someone you love. Choose the scenario that makes you feel great. It helps the endorphins kick in, spreading ‘happy cells’ throughout your body. This means you don’t need to rely on anybody acting a certain way for you to feel good. You can do it yourself, no matter where you are or what’s happening around you.

You can download free meditations here. Download them to your phone and listen for 10-15 minutes per day to the soothing sounds of the beach or use you imagination in the guided sunset meditation. 15 minutes relaxation a day will change your life.

Being Happy is a Great Lifestyle

Although you won’t be happy all the time, it’s really a lifestyle choice to be generally happy. It will take practice to develop a happy lifestyle pattern, but it is worth the effort.

You want to be happy because happy people have access to things that unhappy people don’t.

For instance:

  1. Magnet for opportunities
  2. Loyal fun friends
  3. Improved family relationships
  4. Connection with Source
  5. Appreciation of nature
  6. An easier life
  7. Attract Happy circumstances
  8. Jobs and work you love
  9. Being in the right place at the right time
  10. Feeling supported
  11. Abundance of time and freedom
  12. Great weather
  13. Fun experiences
  14. Great people to share it with
  15. Reduced stress levels
  16. Better health
  17. Sense of general well being
  18. Trust and Belief in the Universe

Happiness is an Attitude

The list goes on. These may not seem to be health benefits but they are. Your attitude determines the quality of your life and happiness is an attitude. When you are happy, life becomes easier. Things just work out. The more often you become happy, the more things work out for you and the more often you’ll believe they will. This cycle becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy which staves off illness and disease. If you do get sick, moving your mood to become happy once again will help you get better more quickly.

You don’t become healthy and then happy. You become happy and then healthy

Being happy is your natural state of being. You were born to be happy.

If you’re not happy now, begin with small steps and look for things to be happy about. Set your intentions each morning to look for things to feel happy about.

Happy people create happy circumstances and a happy reality which is called life. Here are 12 Habits That Happy People Develop.

How To Deepen Your Mind-Body Connection

How To Deepen Your Mind-Body Connection

Did you know that what you think and how you feel, comes out in your body? It’s a true indicator of the mind-body connection.

Your body is made up of trillions of cells that each have intelligence. They know exactly what they need to do to be in balance and create optimum health at any time. This is your peak experience of health and well-being.

Importance of Balance

Each of your cells intelligence is programmed from inception to be in balance, but these same cells can be reprogrammed. This happens when they eavesdrop on your thoughts and your thoughts are not supporting that balance of health and well-being.

Just think, your body is perfectly balanced in health and well-being when you are feeling healthy and balanced. As soon as you begin to think otherwise, your cells begin to listen. Think thoughts often and they become a belief. This belief creates your mood and your body responds to this new programming.

For instance, studies have been conducted that connect anger, anxiety and rage with everything from heart failure to cancer. But you don’t even need to be angry. Sadness will lower your immune system so that you are susceptible to even the common cold. When you are depressed you have depressed cells. When you are excited, your cells are in peak condition and exude endorphins.

How Did You Come To Be Out Of Balance?

When you were born, you were a perfect expression of joy. You were still feeling the connection of source energy from where you came and life was simple and wondrous.

As you grew, your parents began to mould you into their belief patterns by feeding you indicators of whether they thought you were moving in the right direction or not. These indicators were smiles and encouragement when you did something that was pleasing and admonishment when you did something that wasn’t.  So rather than listen to the Mood Barometer within, you began to listen to the guidance of your parents, or whoever brought you up.

Now this would work well if your parents were balanced and understood that you were an advanced being that had its own barometer which would guide you along your path brilliantly. But most parents didn’t and still don’t understand this, thinking that a child is an empty vessel that needs to be filled with ideas and beliefs that are outdated and inaccurate.

Listening To Your Own Guidance

As soon as you began to please someone else rather than listen to your own Mood Barometer, your mood began to shift and you felt less than great. When you would express how you felt, you would be guided in a way that took you further and further from that good feeling place where you began your journey.

Instead of listening to your own guidance, you began to look for others to indicate how you were traveling. If your friends were happy, you must be doing something right and if they were angry with you, you must have done something wrong. This is the reprogramming that occurred. It taught you to listen to others instead of listening to yourself. You have reprogrammed your Mind-Body belief system.

Finally, For The Truth

You weren’t taught what a wondrous, amazing human being you truly were. That you were born on this leading edge of reality with all the tools necessary to create the Best Reality you could imagine. It’s not just in some of us, it’s in every one of us. And we all began the same.

So when you were further from your life’s purpose you would feel a little less great. A little further still and you would begin to feel moods that weren’t balanced with your optimum health. These were your indicators of reprogramming. It didn’t agree with who you really were so it didn’t feel good. If you stayed in that mood for long, you would begin to feel the effects in your body as the cells eavesdropping on the thoughts in your mind, would show you evidence of how you felt through your body.

A Foolproof System

It was a foolproof system, designed so that you would take notice of your pain and clean up your thoughts so that you could once again be in balance with your health and well-being. It is a really simple system. All pain is the imbalance of your thoughts. Change your thoughts and you change your mood. Your dominant mood creates your reality, both in your body and in your life.

So now that you do know the power of your thoughts, choose them carefully and clean up the resistance in your body. Your body will thank you.
